    Brian Blade's band (feat. K Rosenwinkel) titled "Season of changes" is IMHO one of the purest, finely crafted, gorgeous albums out there.
    If anyone hasn't heard this yet please move quickly and indulge.

    Any one else have 1 favorite they can suggest with total confidence?

    nice mention of hella, good album.
    i'd mention 'by a thread' by john ellis, has mike moreno and aaron goldberg, the composition and arrangements on that album are killer.

    1 favourite: The Cure, Keith Jarrett, I've listend to it a million times, every tune is a goldmine of melodic ideas (def. in a Sonny Rollins mood here)

    Bemsha Swing, is a phrase by phrase masterpiece on how to play motivic phrases, almost every phrase could be the melody to a diff. tune

    Old Folks: check out the voice leading and chordal work, what I wouldn't give to sound like that for 30 sec.

    Woody'n You and Golden Earings: swing, swing, swing

    Blame it on My Youth and Body and Sould: beauts' (nice solo by Gary as well)

    The Cure: an original funk fest

    Things Ain't what it Used to be: Gospel, blues delights, yeah Jack D.

    (it's got it all folks...like a lot of their albums, but I just keep coming back to this one, sigh)
